No sinus infection or brain tumour symptoms, I have runny nose

no sinus infection or brain tumor... symptoms ia have runny nose and congestion around the nasal cavaties I have had an EKG and CAT scan- my heart is fine and there’s no sinus infection or brain tumor. My white blood cell count is 3 times the norm and my cholesterol is twice the norm. The symptoms I am having have been going on since October 2008. My symptoms are: runny nose and congestion around the nasal cavaties of my nose, face numbness, tingling in left hand, some chest pain but it comes and goes, headaches, decreased attention span, extreme difficulty in concentrating, some dizziness, not able to focus eyes properly, feel like ears are stopped up and can’t hear good, excessive fatigue, sleeping too much or in short spans, feel panicky inside, extremely depressed, cry a lot, ongoing sore throat and chronic cough, sneezing, eyes burning, chest congestion, and I am doing things that are destructive like driving too fast and missing a lot of work. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and my family has a history of Bipolar, Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Could this be PTSD, Bipolar, or something medical like mold poisoning ?

You clearly appear to have a chronic upper respiratory infection/allergy which needs treatment from a ENT doctor. Regarding the PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) do not be worried about the label but try to sort out your abnormal sleep pattern with your family doctor or a psychiatrist.

The past week, I have been suffering from allergy symptoms such as runny nose, sinus pain, and sneezing. Over the last 2 days, I have had additional symptoms such as chest congestion and the feeling of pressure in my ears (probably a secondary infection from all the fluid built up in my sinuses). None of this is uncommon for me as my allergies have been problematic for me since I was a baby. However, tonight I noticed that I have suddenly developed large blue spots on the ventral side of both arms, approximately 4 inches or 10 cm in diameter. I am not experiencing any shortness of breath (I am actually breathing easier now than I was yesterday, when my allergy symptoms were at their worst), and my resting heart rate is normal for me (78; and usually I m in the 72-80 range) so I do not think it is cyanosis.

I recently had one side of my nose cauterized. My doctor prescribed me aquaphor(petrolatum) ointment and neilmed sinus rinse. the second night after the cauterization, I rinsed my nose with the saline solution. it didn t work too well. i felt like a sponge absorving some of the saline solution although most of the solution did come out from the other nostril. But I spent the next three hours waking up because of a runny nose. but this mucus and blood secretion was very acidic or corrosive. almost like as if i had inhaled cayene powder. that same night i developed a flu like symptoms, with fever, headache, nasal congestion, sore throath, burned lips and tongue. then most of the syntoms vanished one day later except for the nasal congestion. i read somewhere else that i may have had a mucal purulent discharge from the mucus trapped since long time ago. yesterday i tried to do another sinus rinse but am afraid of getting the flu again. what should i do?

5 days ago I had the following sysmptoms. Fever, Chills, Chest congestion without any mucous coming up. Pain in Chest. Head aches. Continuous uncontrolable deep coughing but no phlem or mucous. Sinus congestion but no runny nose. So fatigued could barely get out of bed. I called my doctor but was to sick to make an appointment. He prescribed me Doxycyclin Hyclate 100mg 14 pills. I still have 2 days worth left to take. All my symptoms have finally subsided except for the dry cough but chest still feels congested and I cannot cough anything up. My wife is sick with the same her symptoms started 3 days before mine. Her symptoms have subsided aswell except for the cough and chest congestion. My question s are, was this just Flu and also how long will the congestion last?
